House painting estimates are very important because they help the home owner be able to budget for the whole painting project. One can call in as many as three experts to give them estimates if they intend to paint their house. One of the reasons why you need to call in several painting companies or painters is because their costs and estimates may vary. Getting the most convenient yet reasonably estimated contract is vital since you don’t want to spend all your savings on a shoddy job. There are key aspects to look out for in a painting estimate and some of them are listed below:
All the processes involved
Painting is not s definitive job, partly due to the surface that is to be painted. Let the expert estimate how much it will cost to remove wallpaper, repairing damaged surfaces, caulking and so on. This will help one to avoid running not unforeseen extra costs as these processes will be necessary. If there are any problems that could cause the paint to peel afterwards, like leaking roofs, then they should first be fixed to ensure that the job is done in a comprehensive manner. Old and rotten wood should also be replaced before any repainting is done to avoid wasting paint.
Products and their costs
During the process of painting, many products will be used. One should not only have a specific brand of paint they intend to use but also other products. Let the expert estimate the amount of turpentine, brushes, paint sprayer and scaffolding to be used. If it is an outside job, then the estimation of how much it will cost to rent a power washer is needed. Using an estimate of $55 to $100 per gallon, one should calculate the volume of paint in gallons they will need and the cost. This should account for about a quarter of the whole cost estimates.
Labor costs almost always take the biggest portion of the total painting job cost. Make sure you get a few estimates to ensure that you choose the best quality labor.
